      Got up at the crack of dawn to enjoy a bit of relative coolness on the range this morning. the 88F with 12% humidity felt brisk at 7am. too bad by 8:05a it was starting to cook in the upper 90s on it's way to 114F.

But the number of times I’ve had a mediocre shot saved by the hi toe and the grooves out on said high toe have made me a believer.

          I concur with all the above sentiments. The B100 thread is chock full of unicorns with rainbow halos. And booze.

            Me too, maybe when I retire. The west coast is way to hot and dry right now, but would love a chance to play other areas. Just need to convince the wife who loves to golf also, but doesn't share my penance to spend money.

I didn't care how he was scoring, just that he played at a decent pace. He hacked his way around the course, but he didn't lollygag about it.

                I'd love to get out an play a round or two with you guys in this thread. Maybe one day I will.
                I’ve played with several members of this forum in the past couple months and I can honestly say not one cared how I played. They were all encouraging and supportive when I struggled but never once made me feel like I shouldn’t be on the course with them. All they cared about was making sure the round was enjoyable. Gonna tee it up with a few more of them next week and I can’t wait.

                KYgolfer told me on the first tee when I mentioned playing poorly something along the lines of “buddy, you can write down a 60 and smack the ball around for the next few hours for all I care. I’m here to have fun”

                  Good! I like them a lot. Obviously. Also the CBX or CBX2 wedges might be a good choice. Very different, but both good in their own rights.

                    So, a pretty good lesson tonight. We didn't spend a lot of time hitting balls. More time spent on posture and keeping hands forward on impact. He had me do some swing drills hitting an impact bag. I really like my instructor. The other guy I had a few years ago did none of this kind of stuff.

                    When I was on the range, I was really hitting some good shots for the most part.

                    I'm having a cyst removed from my finger tomorrow and then traveling for work the next two weeks after that, so it will be about 3 weeks before I'll be able to get any swings in.

                        Do you actually play golf when you go to the course or just search for balls????

                                When they issue a heat advisory in Phoenix, they are not messing around. Next 7 day forecast: 113, 110, 109,109,110, 114, 115, 111F. Then there is a reprieve in with a string of only 106. the crappy part is this is typical June weather, and we should be getting afternoon thunderstorms, but not this year. Just *fire*
